Tagged Volume Rendering of the Heart
We present a novel system for 3-D visualisation of the heart and coronary arteries. Binary tags (generated offline) are combined with value-gradient transfer functions (specified online) allowing for interactive visualisation, while relaxing the offline segmentation criteria. The arteries are roughly segmented using a Hessian-based line filter and the pericardial cavity using a Fast Marching active contour. A comparison of different contour initialisations reveals that simple geometric shapes (such as spheres or extruded polygons) produce suitable results.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloads displays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
